In September 1980, the single appeared on the UK charts and stayed there for 18 weeks. The same year, Ottawan released another single “T’es OK”, which becomes number one in France. The unbelievable popularity on the French charts led to the recording of an English version called “You’re OK”, which became popular all over Europe. In the fall of 1980, “You’re OK” stayed in the top-10 of the European charts for 20 weeks and it got the 5th place in the rating of most sold singles of the year. In December 1980, the same song got to the top of the UK charts and stayed there for 6 weeks. Meanwhile, Ottawan recorded their third single “Shalala Song”. The song was popular in France and Belgium.
In 1981, the band releases another single “Haut Les Mains” which got to the top places of French charts. The English version of this song “Hands Up” became a huge hit. It stayed on the top chart positions for 42 weeks and became the most sold single in Germany in 1981. By August 1981, the single earned one of the top spots on the UK charts and stayed there for 15 weeks.
The band continued to record hits. The next one came with a single “Crazy Music”. Then in the end of 1981, Ottawan recorded “Help, Get Me Some Help”. This song became very popular in the UK. By the beginning of 1982, the popularity of the disco began to wane, taking the group’s popularity with it.
